Snafu betting parlor: Most Likable Mod

Postby Valhallen » Mon Nov 05, 2012 1:43 pm

Anyone can bet as many Internets as they want on any part of the election, whether national, state, local, whatever. Bets will be closed twenty four hours from the timestamp of this post. As results come in, I will divide the pools among the people who guessed correctly. If no one bets correctly in a particular pool, the Internets go to the site to help keep it running.

To get things going, I bet ten Internets on Obama winning the election, with five Internets on Romney winning the popular vote. Fifteen on Democrats keeping the Senate, and twenty on Republicans keeping the House.



First round results posted here.
Second round of bets starts here.

40 Obama

And for the hell of it, 15 on Prop 30, 15 on Prop 37.

Since the "points" are basically worthless (lol.) and the winner(s) effectively have bragging rights, I'm going to predict that Romney wins by a landslide.

(Definition of Landslide to be defined by me. Again: lol.)

EDIT: Meh. To keep it fair, 30 Internets on Romney. I still have a huge stockpile of them from debating Valhallen on internet policy (hehe).

"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Good to know that even with all the crazy stuff that goes on daily in the world, some things never change.

Anyone with Internets to spare.



Two main issues with some bets so far: First, only Internets are valid for bets. Anything else will be confiscated for the site's use. This affects the following bets:
narutodesu wrote:One million dollars on Obama and Romney dying one day.
Senel wrote:I bet ten Stuffs on a giant turd winning.
Blood Lord wrote:4 hostages for Papa Johns.


Second, bets have to have unambiguous win / loss conditions in a reasonable timeframe (in this case, until both the winner's victory speech and the loser's concession speech plus a week). If the following bets are not edited before the betting window closes, I will add some details myself to let them be evaluated:
Sir Soulchild wrote:2.3 trillion if there are riots over the results
Unless you want something different, that means at least three people arrested at two or more separate events (within the timeframe above) prompted by the result of the presidential election.

narutodesu wrote:One million dollars on Obama and Romney dying one day.
That's within the timeframe above unless you want to change it.

Unless you want to change things:
Millo wrote:500 says obama wins popular vote but almost loses electoral college vote
"Almost loses" means that (the winner's electoral college votes) - 270 = (less than the electoral votes of the largest "swing state" he won), swing states being CO, FL, IA, NV, NH, NC, OH, PA, VA, and WI or any "decided" state which reverses its predicted choice. Also, as worded, this is a bet on two things considered together: Obama winning the popular vote, and Obama "almost losing" the electoral college vote. Unless you want to split these with their own bets, it will not be a part of the regular election betting pool.
Millo wrote:20 says they'll be a south park episode featuring mitt after the election
First episode after the election, and a visual appearance or speaking role for Romney.
Millo wrote:10 says Florida will be pro romney (due to voter suppression GOP has created there)
This is also two things: that Romney will win Florida, and that it will be because of GOP voter suppression (i.e. that people affected by recent Republican policies there will be more numerous than Romney's margin of victory)

narutodesu wrote:69 internets that the winner comes out with his fly unzipped.
Meaning at his victory speech.

Heh. In that case, 100 Internets that, after the polling places close, in at least three states where they lose, the Democrats will soon thereafter "find" at least 5,000 ballots that they will want to have counted. Are we betting against odds or is it a 1:1 payout?

And I can bet 20 that I will take a piss on the election day at some point.

Taking a page out of the Republican playbook circa 2001, eh?

BETTING IT ALL ON BLACK!

I don't have much, so I guess I'll just put a single Internet on Obama claiming the presidency.
